Good Evening dear ladies..
A little bit of a post tonight...
It has been a sunny but very cold day here in Eastern Canada ..
I am still laying low with this cold but am on the mend..
Thank you, dear Lord..
I was looking for something today in my china cabinets and decided to take a few pics for you..
I know I have shown a few before but it was a while ago.. grin..
There are a lot of you ladies who love old pieces of china like I do..
When I started this blog it was to be snippets of my day..
Just little things that take up the hours as the Keeper of this home..
Hopefully, something will encourage or inspire you..
So.. with that in mind I am afraid you might find me a bit eclectic at times.. smile..
I was putting some things away this afternoon and I came across a shoe box from Christmas.. (I can not throw out shoe or chocolate boxes) grin...
As a small girl they were my treasure boxes.. We only had chocolates at Christmas and shoe boxes were rare but when we did
I would do my best to be allowed to have them.. I used them to put in my wee special things..
I think this little soul was born with a creative mind..
We were a very poor family but I did not mind.. It is amazing what
a child can do with a little box and a piece of fabric or perhaps an old Eaton's catalogue..
Throw in a few buttons from Mama's blouse and Grams loving advice and I would have a masterpiece.. grin..
So, today I thought I would make myself one ..
Just for old times sake...
A roll of postal paper and a piece of wrapping paper...
A glue stick and a marker.....
A little box to put special little reminders of my days..
Perhaps a card from someone dear, a grandson's picture of a special day, a shell or stone or maybe a flower...
A reminder from the year 2012..
Maybe.... a church bulletin for the Sunday that our son comes back to God..
Will you help me pray for that?
Bless your hearts...
Thank you sweet friends for your visit..
God is an awesome God and who knows what this year might bring..
Let me know if you make yourselves a little memory box..
Looking forward to hearing from all of you..
